    You mean dance hall? And I reckon Justice will just be a dj set, no? So they should also fit in the Boiler... Unless they are a live band nowadays? Cant Imagine we've already got the big marquee names. And with main stage names like that, they better be damn good.
  2. Pukkelpop 2018

    Exactly this. Last year had Elbow, Interpol, PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams, Flaming Lips, At The Drive In, Afghan Whigs, Band Of Horses, Moderat, Solange, Cypress Hill and Nicolas Jaar in the middle section. Where are the names that compensate for headliners like Dua Lipa, Imagine Dragons, Travis Scott or, for the the 100th time, Oscar and Bazart? A shame for the handful of brilliant names in the smaller font though.

    Yeah but will Cave agree with this? Can't imagine him playing at 18h nowadays, since he's (co-)headlining each festival he's billed on this year. I'm sure Cave and Arctics will play an equally long set too. I think the 2 top acts on the each day on the website are the 2 closing main stage acts. Plus: putting NiN right before AM surely wouldn't yield a better crowd than Rammstein or Metallica, so for Trent closing the Barn would surely be the better deal, no? I think Trent is done with playing main stages in front of someone elses crowd. And The Barn will guarantee darkness during the whole set. And IF NiN is playing the main stage, I think they're playing right before Cave. Crowd-wise that seems like a better fit. Don't see them drawing a bigger crowd than The Bad Seeds. I'm a HUGE fan of both, mind. And I'd love seeing them both.

    I recommend you to go to the front when Cave's on. Even if you're not that big of a fan. Rarely have I seen an entertainer so involved into the crowd as him. People who are in awe about his current show arent lying or exaggerating. Truly was one of the best concert experiences I've ever had. The setlist was perfectly crafted too, like a rollercoaster ride.

    Might as well post my list here. THURSDAY: Must-sees: Gorillaz, Queens Of The Stone Age, Vince Staples Like to see: Steven Wilson, At The Drive In, The Vaccines, Alice In Chains FRIDAY: Must-sees: Anderson.Paak, The Killers Like to see: Ben Howard, Arsenal, Franz Ferdinand SATURDAY: Must-sees: Jack White, Fleet Foxes, Susanne Sundfor Like to see: MGMT, Blackwave, Pearl Jam SUNDAY: Must-sees: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne, Eels, Fever Ray Like to see: Arctic Monkeys, Sigrid, Idles, NAO The sunday clashes will hit hard, especially when mister Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds clash with Trent and the gang. Arguably my 2 favorite acts of the whole festival so far.
  7. Rock Werchter 2018

    AM has its co-headliner (and one that is in my opinion almost equally as big). Plus the Sunday looks pretty stuffed, even though we may not know who'll be subbing Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. I do think we'll get something big for the Friday. (Even though there are already 5 big names programmed on that day.)
  8. Rock Werchter 2018

    I have a very strong feeling The Script will play The Barn and that we don't have the sub for QOTSA. Just a big hunch. In fact you can quote me on that one later on.
  9. Rock Werchter 2018

    It's waay to early for that. ;-) Normally we get around 80 names (last year we got 78?). But with the Slope, we can expect another 10-20 names on top of that. So we're just halfway.
  10. Rock Werchter 2018

    Blackwave is nice. And Arsenal and Triggerfinger are reliable acts.
  11. Rock Werchter 2018

    Chemical Brothers are playing Dour, so they're ruled out.
  12. Rock Werchter 2018

    I'd rather have The XX. Saw Florence 4 times in the last 7 years at RW. She's great, but the last one felt tiresome.
  13. Rock Werchter 2018

    Praying for Childish Gambino.
  14. Rock Werchter 2018

    That's not the point. James Blake subbed Radiohead, Alt-J subbed Foo Fighters. Those are massive acts who can sell out their day on their own. An equally big co-headliner isn't necessary for them. But The Killers will most definitely need that. The Killers don't sell too much tickets. They (probably) waited so long to long to announce them because of that gig in Sportpaleis which even now didn't sell out. In fact, The Killers are less profitable than Gorillaz, Pearl Jam, Nick Cave, Arctic Monkeys in Belgium. So that's why I think there's stil something missing. Edit: But the Killers will most definitely help shifting combi tickets. As a whole, the set of QOTSA + Gorillaz + The Killers + Jack White + Pearl Jam + Nick Cave + Arctic Monkeys (+ Nine Inch Nails + London Grammar + Snow Patrol) is one of the strongest set of headlining acts they've had. IMO ;-)
  15. Rock Werchter 2018

    You forgot Cave. ;-) Both QOTSA/Gorillaz and Nick Cave/AM are co-headlining (probably getting an equally long time slot). And I'm counting Jack White as a headliner too, just because he has that status on every other festival. So I reckon we'll still get the 'other Friday headliner'. Thursday: Queens Of The Stone Age / Gorillaz Friday: The Killers / XXX Saturday: Jack White / Pearl Jam Sunday: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds / Arctic Monkeys
  16. Rock Werchter 2018

    Why not? I even think he's a good contender for a nice KlubC spot (no main stage name ofc). Still on the top of my wishlist are the following acts: Childish Gambino, Solange, Bryan Ferry, The Breeders, a Gallagher, Tame Impala, Sampha, Father John Misty, St Vincent, Interpol, Jungle. And maybe The XX as Friday co-headliner. (And for the dreamers: Thom Yorke or Smashing Pumpkins.) If we get 3-4 of those, I'll be VERY glad. Hell, I'm very glad with this lineup as well. :-)
  17. Rock Werchter 2018

    I heard Foo Fighters are still finishing their overly long Monkey Wrench jam. Oh god.
  18. Rock Werchter 2018

    Not at all. As I said, Radiohead was my highlight of the weekend. And I rarely witnessed a crowd so into it as at their Werchter gig. (I was standing quite up front, mind) In Rainbows is probably my favorite album by anyone ever so I was very pleased with the 6 IR songs and 7(!) OK Computer songs we got.
  19. Rock Werchter 2018

    I was talking about the 2 headliners. ;-) And while SOAD was excellent, I dare to say Radiohead was even better.
  20. Rock Werchter 2018

    Linkin Park and Blink were awful (SOAD was great though), but this years Saturday already bowls over that day. Pearl Jam and Jack White is a much stronger combination than 2 nu metal bands from the 00s. (And most definitely more expensive too) C'mon. It all comes down to taste of course.
  21. Rock Werchter 2018

    Your trolling has become quite obvious. Try better. This lineup consists of almost every big act touring that weekend. Only Mad Cool does better in that manner. Thursday, Saturday and sunday (!) are already stacked. I do have to say friday still feels slightly light, but the headliners are clearly missing there. Once it is finished, this lineup (literally) will be huge.
  22. Rock Werchter 2018

    Disappointing list tbh. But you can't win them all!
  23. Rock Werchter 2018

    I think they'll redo the area. They're making a different tree setup. And if this stage is an actual 4th stage, then we'll be close to 100 acts on the lineup...
  24. Rock Werchter 2018

    Never heard of these guys. Are they any good?
  25. Rock Werchter 2018

    I've only heard that dreadful 'down down diggy diggy' song, out of the newer ones. But I'll give it a listen.
